2022 MFA Photography Survey

October 24 – December 15, 2022
Jeffrey J. Hoone Gallery
Reception: Thurs, October 27, 5-7pm

Light Work announces with great pleasure our inaugural exhibition in partnership with the Art Photography M.F.A. program from the Film and Media Arts Department in Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. In this survey of all enrolled candidates, we see a wide range of approaches that compliment and vary from one another. These images vividly present themes of cloaking and vulnerability, the subverting of histories, conceptual expressions of time, chance, theater, and formalism. Together, they showcase a wonderful confidence in experimental picture-making processes and they highlight the ever-expanding field of photography through distinct perception and follow-through.

The goal of the M.F.A program in Art Photography is to help artists develop their unique voice. Through intensive study that includes tutorial and group critique along with courses in history, theory, and criticism, candidates benefit from an intense and passionate learning environment that emphasizes contemporary art and practice.

Exhibition includes work by: David De Lira, Olivia Dovorany, Lily LaGrange, Qianjin Men, Ryan Mitchell, Tripty Tamang Pakhrin, Wanda-Marie Rana, Anshul Roy, Greeshma Chenni Veettil, Jasmine Veronica, Yanqi Wang, Zifan Wang, and Kate Warren.
